There’s something about a market. The liveliness, colours in the produce for sale, the human too-ing and fro-ing etc. Taken together these all give a photographer opportunities to observe and catch with a discreet press of a shutter button.
Anyone who has had the stamina to wander through the ramblings in this blog will know that regular themes and places turn up. One of the places is Southport on the Lancashire coast. For me it’s easy to get to place and useful for blowing away the mind fogs that settle from time to time and lead the idea ships onto the rocks.
Sheffield is a favourite destination. I’m no expert of the South Yorkshire city but I’m working on it. It’s a relatively easy place for me to get to. By car, if I have to, I take the route through Derbyshire and the Snake Pass. The preferred option though is the train. There’s a regular through service from Warrington which is straightforward for me to get to.
